News – EC Website Down – RASFF Alerts Delay

Hi there

Sorry for the delay in RASFF Updates but the EC  website portal is down but here is a link to the 2017 report.


The RASFF was put in place to provide food and feed control authorities with an effective tool to exchange information about measures taken responding to serious risks detected in relation to food or feed. This exchange of information helps Member States to act more rapidly and in a coordinated manner in response to a health threat caused by food or feed. Its effectiveness is ensured by keeping its structure simple: it consists essentially of clearly identified contact points in the Commission, EFSA, EEA and at national level in member countries exchanging information in a clear and structured way by means of an online system called iRASFF.
